WordPress (via Yahoo) (2 posts)

    Trying to get my WordPress blog started through the tools via Yahoo.
    I managed to activate it. It says: Congratulations! So that worked.
    But the moment I am trying to edit blog settings or manage the plug-ins it gives the message:

    Sorry!
    This page is currently unavailable while we undergo routine maintenance.
    We apologize for any inconvenience. Please try again soon.

    I have called Yahoo and they told me to try and deactivate it, which I did, but without a positive result.

    Unfortunately I am not a technician, but I believe this should work by following the easy set-up???? Or am I missing something?
    Anybody who can tell me what I do wrong?

    Regards
    Claudie

    It sounds like the maintenance flag file didn't get properly removed. Connect via FTP (or use an online file manager if Yahoo provides one) and look for a file called .maintenance - it should be in the main WordPress installation folder. If you find that, delete it and you should be good to go.
